Wacky Kids Krates

We currently are partnering with the Arts Council of Westerville on their Wacky Kids Krates.  These kits include two gourd projects submitted by the Ohio Gourd Society.  What a wonderful gift that will keep your child busy creating something of their own to make them proud and possibly offer them a new hobby to continue in the future.
